Alex talks with the former chief economist at Boston strategic-consulting firm Chas. T. Main and author John Perkins. His best known book is Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, an insider's account of the exploitation or neo-colonization of Third World countries by what Perkins describes as a cabal of corporations, banks, and the United States government. Perkins will discuss his latest article claiming that the CIA and Chiquita Brands International Inc., formerly United Fruit, and Dole Food Co. engineered the recent coup in Honduras. Alex also covers the latest news and takes your calls.
